Manicure Monday: Chanel 543 Frisson

You know what I love about nail polish? It's an excuse to look at your favorite colors allllll the time. I'm the type of person who--given the choice--would color coordinate her entire life in every way possible, so if there's a color that makes me particularly happy, nail polish is my joyful reason to stare at it more often. Chanel Frisson happens to be one of those colors. It's happiness in a bottle!

Manicure Monday: OPI Into The Night

Happy Monday everyone! Today I wanted to share a brand new nail polish from OPI's The Amazing Spiderman collection called Into The Night, which I received as a gift from my awesome sister-in-law. As soon as I saw the bottle I knew I wanted to try it on right away. To be honest, my first impression of it was that there's nothing like this blue in my collection (cue excitement) and I'm happy to say that it's also one of the most flattering mid-toned blues I've ever tried on my skintone!

How to Pack Makeup for Travel

Dear World,
Hi, I'm Jen and I'm a last-minute packer.

Every trip, I will always cut into my "early sleep to prepare for travel" time, freaking out that I'm forgetting something while throwing things into my suitcase like the world is about to end. You would think that after all these flights over the last 2 years I would have packing down pat, and you would be partially right. Suitcase? Miiiight be a little smushed with too many shoes. Makeup though? That's a whole other story. I GOTCHA COVERED!

If you need a little help packing your cosmetics and TSA-approved 1 Quart clear bag, here is what I brought for a weekend trip with carry-on only luggage.

Manicure Monday: OPI Liquid Sand "The Impossible"

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you another polish from OPI's Liquid Sand collection. After being stunned by the beautiful blue "Get Your Number" from this line, I eagerly snatched up "The Impossible" which is a hot red-pink textured polish with red, silver, and holographic glitter particles as well as the occasional red star glitter. Did I love it as much as my first experience? Let's take a look!

SNSD "I Got A Boy" Makeup Tutorial


Hey everyone! I wanted to kick off tutorials for the new year with a really fun K-pop inspired makeup tutorial. Literally the day the I Got A Boy music video from Girls Generation was uploaded a week ago, requests have been pouring in and I can certainly tell why! This is their comeback song so it's catchy and the video is flashy and entertaining. Very cool makeup to play around with! :D

Check out the tutorial and photos below!

Manicure Monday: OPI Liquid Sand "Get Your Number"

I'm not sure why it is that I torture myself with trying to share with you guys the most difficult-to-capture polishes for my Mani Mondays, but today is yet again another polish that wows so much in person that photos of any kind simply don't do it justice. It's not just my photos, it's literally every photo of this polish on the internet. Still images just don't twinkle like Get Your Number from OPI's new Liquid Sand collection! It's a whole new look and texture compared to every other polish I've tried and I was pleasantly surprised by it.
